2017 winter colour guide

12th Jun '17 • By Emily Ayers

We’re excited this year for the new interior design trends this frosty season brings. Get your home ready this season with our ultimate 2017 winter colour guide!

Winter Colour Guide

Navy Blue

Navy blue is the perfect colour choice this winter. Besides it’s aesthetics, rich blue is very calming for the mind, which can help you relax and keep centred. Blue is the embodiment of winter, symbolising trust and wisdom. You can expect to see navy blue appear more and more in local stores and shops as winter progresses. Our favourite choices for incorporating blue into the home are - feature walls, paintings, towel, throws and pillows (the softer the better!).

Rich Salmon

With the cooling weather, bring warmth into your home through colour. This winter, expect rich salmon to be the highlight of many interior decorators’ showrooms. The best part about this colour is it works well passing from winter through to spring. Try pairing this colour with almost any dark-impact colour for an interesting match. Our favourite décor items using this colour are - statement lounge or armchair, flowers, wallpaper, curtains or rugs.

Neutral Colours

If you’re looking for something timeless (especially when it comes to painting your walls), you should consider neutral colours. When put together right, neutral shades look effortless and minimalistic. The key here is to add dimension with texture and golden décor. As well, indoor plants can help add life to neutral interiors by adding a touch of green.

Neutral Colour Interior

If you like to change your interior often, neutral colours blend seamlessly with almost any other colour. This gives a plethora of different combinations that you can try with your décor. Swap out pillows and throws with different colours, and you have a whole new theme.  


Beige is very rustic looking in nature and gives off an earthly tone. We recommend pairing this colour with wooden furniture or anything natural to get the best effect.

For neutral interiors, black is ideal for creating contrasting and forcing a focal point. For example, placing a sculpture in front of a dark wall can help make that object stand out.
